A southbound Northeast Regional train hit and killed a man on Amtrak rails in Frankford late Sunday, according to Philadelphia police. The Hispanic man in his 30s, as yet unidentified, was near Worth and Kinsey streets at 11:42 p.m. Sunday and pronounced dead at the scene at 11:59 p.m., police said.
New images come to light of a most unusual 19th-century Northeast mansion.
